Most everyone knows about the new scandal that Scooter Libby is claiming the President Bush authorized him to leak classified information in order to counteract a critic of the Iraq war. A couple questions have come up that I would really like to see addressed:
1.) If the President was within his rights to declassify that information, then why didn't he come right out and say it was him? What was the point of making it seem like they were upset about the leak if it came from the President?
2.) What was the point of revealing Valerie Plame's name?
Anyone have a guess?
